All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.

Be appreciative

Life brings you great and wonderful gifts each day. Be aware, be appreciative, and be willing to make the best use of every one.

Often, the most valuable of life’s gifts don’t look very appealing when you first encounter them. They appear as demanding problems and complicated challenges.

Be appreciative anyway, and soon you’ll begin to see the positive value that’s hidden in those difficulties. Be appreciative, and you’ll discover ways to make meaningful use of that value.

What you have may not seem like much, yet within what you already have is your connection to all you could ever desire. Truly appreciate what you already have, what you already know, what you already can do, and you’ll activate that connection to limitless abundance.

Be appreciative of the truth, even when it is painful. Be appreciative of each moment, of each circumstance, of each encounter, for everything can add richness to your life when you allow it.

Be appreciative of whatever may come. And you’ll see your own unique way to make it great.

— Ralph Marston
